Puma and Rhude Create a Sneaker Inspired by an Iconic Soccer Boot From 1968

Los Angeles-based streetwear brand Rhude, a frequent Puma collaborator, has once again reimagined a silhouette from the German sportswear giant.

Arriving this week is the Rhude x Puma Cell King as part of its ongoing co-branded collection. The silhouette is inspired by the iconic King soccer boot that debuted in 1968, which Puma told FN in 2018 was the brand’s most important shoe ever.

The Rhude x Puma Cell King is equipped with leather uppers featuring soccer-inspired stitching and a removable tongue piece that includes the Rhude logo. The look is also built with suede Formstripe branding and a midsole with a vintage look that features the brand’s acclaimed Cell cushioning technology. Rhude dressed the Cell King in colors to keep the vintage look including black and beige hues.

The Rhude x Puma Cell King arrives via Puma.com, at Puma stores and select retailers on Sept. 5 and will retail for $150.
